Nadya, a 14-year-old Siberian girl plucked from her small village to be a model

February 22, 2013, the University of Southern Mississippi's Film Program will sponsor a screening of the documentary film Girl Model. Told through the eyes of a 13-year-old Siberian girl and the American scout who discovered her, Girl Model follows a complex, global supply chain of young girls sent abroad to seek their fortunes in the unregulated and often murky world of the modeling industry.

Doors to the Fleming Education Center Auditorium will open for the screening at 6:30 p.m. with the film beginning at 7 p.m.

Admission is free of charge. It is part of the Southern Circuit 2012-2013 Tour of Indepdent Filmmakers.
